What cheese is low-phosphorous? We eat a lot of berries.
 
Cheese varieties with less than 100 mg of phosphorus per serving include:
  • Brie (1 oz)
  • Camembert (1 oz)
  • Cream cheese (2 Tbsp)
  • Feta (1 oz)
  • Fontina (1 oz)
  • Goat (soft, 1 oz)
  • Neufchatel (1 oz)
  • Sharp cheddar (2/3 oz)
 
All cheese contains phosphorus with most having 120-250 mg per ounce; some contain more than 300 mg per ounce. The suggested portion for a dialysis diet is usually one ounce of cheese, one to two times a week if phosphorus is controlled. Check with your dietitian for individual recommendations.

My paternal grandfather and great-grandfather died of kidney disease. I have no clue about their diets. Granddaddy died when my father was a little boy. I blamed his death on military service in WWI until I learned that his father suffered the same disease.
